Pepper's Lambs 4/4/12

Pepper did what she always does well . . . gives birth at the same time of day (always mid-day), unassisted, and predicably gives me rams. . . . yesterday at around noon I heard her calling in the barn.  I knew she was in labor.   

Already one lamb was out and being cleaned off by Pepper and I could tell another was on its way.  Sure enough when I came back to check on her the other lamb was out, cleaned off and nursing.  Two nice sized ram lambs . . the black spotted mouflon ram weighed 7.5 pounds and the badgerface weighed in at 6.5 pounds.
